Wolves fans react on Twitter to performance of Rui Patricio

The goalkeeper was in sensational form for the hosts as they progressed to the last eight of the Europa League.

Wolves set up a Europa League quarter-final against La Liga giants Sevilla with a 1-0 victory over Olympiacos at Molineux.

The Greek champions played some lovely football on the night but Raul Jimenez’s first-half penalty saw Nuno Espirito Santo’s men over the line with a 2-1 aggregate victory.

One man who was in fine form was goalkeeper Rui Patricio who produced several decent stops, with one in particular during the first half catching the eye.

The Portuguese goalkeeper played in every single Premier League game this season and will now go on the hunt for honours in Europe.

Patricio arrived at Molineux in 2018, penning a four-year contract worth a reported £100,000-a-week (Spotrac).

He is firmly established as Wolves’ number one goalkeeper and plenty of supporters think he is one of the best custodians in the Premier League.

His heroics this evening against Olympiacos really caught the eye and plenty of supporters took to Twitter to speak of his performance.

Here is a selection of Tweers from the Wolves faithful regarding the agility and finesse of Patricio’s goalkeeping.
